More from the “tolerant left”

Posted by: ST on October 5, 2006 at 10:00 am

Scott Johnson at Powerline has the details on a disturbing incident last night that happened at an event hosted by the Columbia University College Republicans. Here’s a teaser: the event featured a speech by Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist.

What happened within a few minutes of Gilchrist taking the stage will surprise no one familiar with just how intolerant the so-called “tolerant left” really is.

PM Update: STILL more from the party of tolerance. Sigh.

Speaking of Scott Johnson, he’ll be the keynote speaker at this weekend’s Carolina FreedomNet 2006 conference in Greensboro, sponsored by the John Locke Foundation. I’ll be there, too, on one of the panels, and am looking fwd to meeting Lorie Byrd, MK Ham (Lorie will be on the panel I’m on, and MKH will be on the other panel) and so many others. Click here to see the schedule of events, who will be on the two panels, and to register for the conference. Hope to see you there!

      It seems that should any Columbia administrator or professor appear in public, they should be confronted on their bias and hypocrisy.

      Never happen, PCD.

      This kind of crap needs to be broadcast and blared to all of America. But it won’t be. Light Lefties never really hear of this garbage done in their names, and they’re the ones who can kill the Loons of the Left.

    3. You mean . . . the leader of a vigilante group was subjected to disruptive anti-social behavior?

      Wow. . . . Wonder what caused that?

      And why, exactly, should all Columbia administrators or professors be “confronted” “should [they] appear in public” because their students are rowdy, but vigilantes shouldn’t be “confronted” because they’re racist yahoos prowling public lands threatening to shoot people?

    4. “You mean . . . the leader of a vigilante group was subjected to disruptive anti-social behavior?

      Wow. . . . Wonder what caused that?”

      Intolerant morons, who you seem to be excusing.

      Pathetic. This guy didn’t threaten anyone there, did he? TMG exists to find illegal aliens, so unless there were a bunch of illegal aliens fearful for their lives last night at the speech and rushing the stage, I fail to see your “point.”

      I guess we can just chalk this up as one more example of the ends justifying the means to the far left. I should also add that I think the far left is a vigilante group, but you won’t see me rushing a stage to intimidate and shut them up.

    5. Ryan says:

      They can’t win in a debate, so what’s the best thing they can do? Shut it down.

      Vigilante from

      2. any person who takes the law into his or her own hands, as by avenging a crime.
      3. done violently and summarily, without recourse to lawful procedures: vigilante justice.

      Mind if I ask… how is reporting crimes (illegal entry of into the U.S) to the Border Patrol labeled vigilante?

      Seems Kevin is either ignorant or lying… until and unless he can point to an illegal alient having violence committed against him/her by this group or directed to by this group’s leader.

      But now that he is corrected by this post I expect to see an apology for the mischaracterization…:-w

      Freedom of speech for me, but not for theee.

      The liberal crying call.

      We have a constitution that says we can have freedom of speech.

      They love using the freedom of speech for themselves, but do not want others with opposing views to speak.

      I mean seriously, look how mad they get with Fox News. It drives them nuts that there is a major news channel out there that they don’t control.

    8. Great White Rat says:

      All they need are brown shirts with little armbands.

      I love the fact that one of them was honest enough to say that people who disagree with them have “no right to speak”. The essence of moonbatus psychoticus in one sentence.

    9. Baklava says:

      Fascists is the word for the left here.

    10. NC Cop says:

      Apparently Kevin is a typical leftwing “hit and run” poster. They post, then they never return to hear opposing viewpoints.


    11. Great White Rat says:

      Another point – notice that one banner the fascist youth group displayed was printed in Arabic.

      Think about what that says.

      I’m thinking it’s a clear signal to the al Qaeda types of the world that this bunch of thugs – probably the future leaders of the Democratic party – are in solidarity with them.

      Scary. If you think the Dems are weak on national security now, just wait a few more years.

      These kids were outta control, the conservative kid who organized this was on Hannity’s show last night and even lou dobbs covered it, pitiful… this was several groups, alot of them backed by a socialist group, ah, higher education and freedom of speech.
      We must blog the hell outta this to show what asswipes these people are …. I’m so fed up.**==

    13. John says:

      I call these liberal socialist kids WOCI – white inside, colored outside. Apparently they feel more strongly for the oh-those-poor-suppressed-colored-folks-from-my-poor-‘hood than their own community. I bet all of these kids will one day grow up to be fairly rich, and then understand the necessity of conservatism – we just let them have fun while separated from reality in college. But if some of them continue to be what they are today, Lord help our community in the west. You know what I’m talking about. Sorry if this offends some on this thread.

    14. Travis Wednesday says:

      So some “good samaritan” thinks he’s doing the right thing by roaming around the border behaving like some sort of official body of the American government. If he really wants to help out why doesn’t he volunteer that group to do community work and help raise the bottom line.
      Immigrants may pose a problem, but that problem won’t be solved by putting up a fence or having some arrogant cowboys self righteously prance around a border blocking people who have an indigenous right to that land. I think the Minutemen are idiots who have gotten more press then they deserve, the government needs a red herring to throw on the other side of their monumental list of mistakes that day after day further spiral out of control.

      I believe in free speech on both sides of this, if your gonna go up and talk shit get ready to have shit thrown back at you, if you talk in reactionary tones on issues people would see as being contraversial then get ready for a response from the reactionary left.

      It’s not like the FBI is infiltrating his group or trying to throw him in jail, this is just some socialists protesting a figure, not letting him speak then getting into a brawl, to turn this into a question over freedom of speech is a gross overestimation of the significance of this event, talking like that is just gonna get people emotional. Its not like there is some sort of media blackout on his issues.
